Take $400 Off XPS 13 with 8th-Gen Intel, 256GB SSD

The XPS 13 is our favorite Windows laptop that offers the perfect trifecta of style, portability and performance.

  xps 13 open 675403 Although we have seen it for only $ 749, that price generally applies to the base configuration, which has been hampered by a previous generation CPU or an anemic 128 GB SSD. Today, however, Dell through its eBay store is offering the XPS 13 (9360) with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD for $ 899.99. That's $ 400 off the traditional price of this system and the lowest we've seen for this configuration.

In terms of performance, this XPS will not disappoint because it houses a 1.8GHz Core i7. 8550U quad-core processor. In our tests, the XPS 13 scored an impressive 14,158 on Geekbench 4, which is more than twice the average of the 6,801 category for 13-inch ultraportables. The fast 256 GB SSD was also able to transfer 4.97 GB of files in just 10 seconds at a speed of 508Mbps.

However, it is the battery life of the XPS that impressed us. The laptop endured an epic of 16 hours and 5 minutes in our battery test. That's more than enough for a full flight from New York to Taiwan without needing a recharge.

It is worth noting that Dell has a new XPS 13 (9370), which is currently on sale. You can withdraw $ 100 from the selected configurations of the newest laptop through the coupon code "100OFF999". However, a similarly configured XPS 9370 would cost you $ 1,099.99 after the coupon. In addition, the base model only has 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD for $ 999.99.

And although the model 9370 has some improvements worth mentioning as a better cooling system and support eGPU, lacks USB ports type A (hi, dongle life) and its battery reaches a maximum of 12 hours and 37 minutes.

There's nothing to be wasted, but in a nutshell: you'll find more value in XPS 13 9360.
